's not the tax code. it's entitlements. 10,000 baby boomers retire a day. social security and medicare are about $50 trillion underfunded combined, and we need to adjust the age of retirement slowly but surely for people under 55 because we're all living longer. you and i need to pay a little more into the system because we can afford it. that's the kind of entitlement reform we need to avoid the coming grief. >> greta: there are two things to do. nothing. i guess there are three things. we can do nothing, manage it, or solve it. manage is sort of a limping along situation. recognizing that more baby boomers are coming along. management is actually getting more of a situation. >> the longer you wait to solve it, the harder it is. if we do nothing, social security runs out of money in 2033. medicare goes broke in 2024, and to fix it, you would have to increase taxes by one-third for the entire population or cut benefits by 28%. if you do it now, you could save the benefit string for those who need it the most, ask people like me to pay more and areduce my benefits because i can afford to take the

at the army of aarp representatives that ensure that programs like medicare and social security, programs that take up something like 50% of our federal budget will remain intact and won't be subjected to the necessary reform to last for young people to ever reach them. the problem is that young people don't think life goes on after the age of 30. if you're on twitter and facebook, that's a long way away. why are you worried about entitlements? >> the funny thing is that president obama is using social media to do the exact same thing. for example, he will visit a virginia middle class family today. they were part of his twitter verse. that's why he chose them. he must think that talking to average americans might force republicans to change their minds about raising taxes on the wealthiest americans. >> well, if the most recent election is any indication, president obama is dead on right. he was -- he and his team were masters at social media in getting elected. and using social media to spread his message in nontraditional ways, ways that will be traditional in every election going forw
